"Sir Mix-a-Lot - Baby Got Back" vs "Nicki Minaj - Anaconda"


"Baby Got Back" is one of my favorite songs from the 90's...

It is a song written and recorded by American artist Sir Mix-a-Lot, from his album Mack Daddy. The song samples the 1986 electro single "Technicolor" by Channel One.

At the time of its original release, the song caused controversy with its outspoken and blatantly sexual lyrics about women, as well as specific references to the female buttocks which some people found objectionable. The video was briefly banned by MTV. "Baby Got Back" has remained popular and even anthemic since it was originally featured on the album Mack Daddy in 1992.

It was the second best-selling song in the US in 1992, behind Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You", with sales of 2,392,000 physical copies that year. In 2008, it was ranked number 17 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop.

Sir Mix-a-Lot - Baby Got Back



In my opinion, this is a remake of "Baby Got Back"
Nicki Minaj - Anaconda



"Anaconda" is a song by American rapper Nicki Minaj, from her third studio album, The Pinkprint (2014). It was released on August 4, 2014 by Young Money Entertainment, Cash Money Records, and Republic Records as the second single from the album. The song was written and produced by Polow da Don, Anonymous, Da Internz, and it was co-written by Minaj. "Anaconda" heavily samples "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot.

Upon release "Anaconda" was met with generally positive reviews from music critics, who praised the song's production and Minaj's return to her hip-hop roots. Commercially, the song was an international success peaking at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, consequently becoming Minaj's highest charting single in the United States to date. It went on to spend eight consecutive weeks in the top ten of the Hot 100 chart. The song also fared well in other countries peaking within the top ten in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

An accompanying video for the song was directed by Colin Tilley and released on August 19, 2014. Following the video's release, it broke the 24-hour streaming record on Vevo by accumulating 19.6 million views in its first day of release. To further promote the song, Minaj performed it live at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards and also performed it at Fashion Rocks and the iHeartRadio Music Festival. "Anaconda" is nominated for Best Rap Song at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in 2015.

How Teens React to Nicki Minaj - Anaconda
..."It's not her real butt, no one's butt can be that big!"...


How Elders React to Nicki Minaj - Anaconda...
..."Anaconda is not a snake, it's a big penis to match the big butt, now it make sense!"...


How do you react to this video? What do you think?

Tuna Macaense is a legendary band in Macau. Consisting of generations of Macau born Portuguese (Macaense), in their 2005 CD album inlay, I saw a photo of the band taken in 1935 !

澳門人樂隊 (TUNA MACAENSE) 於 1935 年成立,由三十多個土生葡人組織而成他們最初只屬街頭表演,於喜慶節日中演出,用曼陀林 (Mandolin),班雀琴 (Banjo),葡國結他(GuitaraPortuguesa),手風琴及敲擊等樂器,演奏出帶有葡式文化色彩的 Cha Cha, Latin 等風格之音樂其後,受到澳門政府賞識,邀請為親善大使,到美,泰,韓,澳洲及歐洲各地演出交流,宣揚本他文化,隨著時代的轉變,TUNA MACAENSE 的音樂亦隨之變得更迎合現代風格,他們主要仍為葡式音樂,除了唱葡國土語(PATUA')外,亦會演繹英語,甚至國語及廣東歌曲.
